· 2 cups cashew nuts
· 1 cup sugar
· Water - 1/2 cup
· 4-5 drops kewra essence
· Ghee or oil for greasing

Powder the cashews in a dry mixer for a minute. Grind the cashews into fine powder. Sieve the powder to get rid of any big particles left behind. Place a pan over medium flame, add half cup water and sugar. Turn the flame to minimum heat and stir the sugar solution. Cook the sugar syrup for just a few seconds until the sugar dissolves. Add in the cashew powder and mix on low heat. Then add the kewra essence.
Cook the mixture; first it will convert into dropping consistency then the mixture will start coming together as dough. Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl.
When you are able to handle the heat in the mixture, smear few drops of ghee or oil on hands and start kneading the cashew mixture till the mixture turns to smooth dough, for a minute. Take a butter paper or greased plate and roll the dough with rolling-pin. Roll the dough in rectangle shape in thickness of your choice. Cut the dough into diamond shape and decorate with silver leaf.
